Salters’ Festivals are a series of one-day fun events held at universities throughout the UK and Ireland. They begin in mid March and run through to the end of June. The festivals provide the opportunity for enthusiastic young students to spend a day in a university department and to take part in practical chemistry activities which are fun! Prizes are awarded to the winning teams and all students receive participation certificates and fun prizes. Since 1991, over 50,000 students at more than 900 festivals have experienced the fun of practical chemistry through the Salters’ Festivals. None of this could have been achieved without the continual help, support and sponsorship from over fifty companies.
